Well, actually, contrary to what I've said earlier, there is cblas 
available in the new blas package (in hardy, which is why I have not 
seen it; I don't use debian anymore for non server machines). So one 
solution could be to build numpy against blas/lapack/cblas packages, 
making sure the CBLAS is found, and then, people could install atlas to 
change the runtime libraries.

Now, I am not sure whether numpy can currently build against the 
standard CBLAS. I know it can build against ATLAS (and Intel MKL) CBLAS, 
but I don't know for others,
